Are the Marais and East Paris the new hotspots of the West? That’s where Bretons are celebrating buckwheat and wheat flour crepes these days…. Take Jérémie and Marie for example, a pur beurre duo from Saint-Malo who successfully transformed this old-fashioned crêperie into an enviable space with red brick walls, a marble-topped bar, high wicker barstools, ceramic lampshades and (yes!) a big Thai suspension lamp. The same care is given to the ingredients (organic flours from the Moulin de Bertaud, ham and mushrooms from Terroirs d’Avenir, Coat Albret cider…) used in the fuss-free galettes: there’s a generous complète, ones with egg and bacon, the Ty Nevez (andouille from Guémené, mustard, egg, cheese), a good honey and goat cheese crepe, and a nostalgic dark chocolate version…. To drink, there’s Sorre cider (€4 a bowl), artisanal apple juice (€3.50) and Breizh Cola (€3.70). Galettes €3 to €9.50, crêpes €2.80 to €9.70, set menus €10.80 to €12.80 (lunch). // J.G.
